Craig Morgan Breaks Silence on Death of His Teenage Son

Country singer Craig Morgan is opening up about the death of his teenage son Jerry Greer for the first time.

The 19-year-old died earlier this month after a tubing accident at a lake in Kentucky. The funeral was held five days ago and Craig is thanking his fans for their support during this difficult time.

“The loss of our son Jerry is the hardest thing we have ever had to endure as a family. Karen and I are so grateful for all of the wonderful people who have shown us unwavering support during this difficult time,” Craig wrote on Instagram. “There are too many to name here, but we are especially thankful for the Humphreys County Sheriff and Fire Departments, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, and all the additional agencies and volunteers who turned out to bring our son home.”

“We would also like to thank our friends, family members, and Jerry‘s friends who have all shown us an immense amount of love and support. Additionally, we cannot thank the music and outdoor communities enough for wrapping their arms around us, as well as our industry friends, fans, and all those that loved our son,” Craig added. “We are blessed by the outpouring of prayers and condolences from across the world. Jerry may be gone from this earth, and we will miss him every day, but his spirit will live on in our hearts. We will find peace knowing that God has a bigger plan, and that one day, we’ll be reunited with him again in Heaven. John 3:16.”
